Yes, it’s their new blackberry fragranced Absolutely Ageless™ products that are a delicious mix Aveeno concentration of ACTIVE NATURALS® Blackberry Complex infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-aging ingredients. If I have to have fragrance in my products then let them be yummy.

The AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Collection was created to help reduce the visible effects of elastin and collagen loss, but to also nourish skin, to keep it looking younger, longer. Who wouldn’t want that?

Let’s start with cleansing our skin with the Nourishing Cleanser. This is gentle enough for both morning and night. I keep it in my shower because of the plastic pump. I don’t have to worry about breakage and it’s sealed well so water doesn’t seep in. This removes dirt and makeup and totally refreshes my skin making it ready for my day. It’s hydrating without being too rich so it doesn’t clog pores at all. The MSRP is $7.99 so it’s an affordable option in your life.

AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum is a wonderful serum as it contains everything that Aveeno is known for including this new Active Naturals Blackberry Complex. It’s a thin serum that absorbs pretty quickly without leaving any stickiness behind. The top is a pump so you aren’t compromising the inside. While the MSRP is $19.99 which is a good price for this top notch serum, Amazon has it for $12.86 making it a steal.

The next step for me is to apply eye cream since I want everything absorbed before it’s time to put on any cosmetics. Aveeno didn’t forget my favorite product when they came out with AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Eye Cream. This 0.5 oz eye cream is the perfect size for home and travel. The slant tip makes it easy to apply without using your fingers if you want. If you want to lose your dark circles and that pesky puffiness this is a great way to go. You know I’m a nut about eye cream and it’s wonderful to find one so well priced. And I don’t notice a fragrance!!!!

Moving on we need moisturizer and Aveeno Absolutely Ageless has both a daily moisturizer and a night cream. I’m always delighted when there’s sunscreen in my moisturizer since it saves me an extra step. AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 fits that bill. The moisturizer has the strongest fragrance of the 5 products but you won’t notice it after a while. It comes with a pump applicator. As with all of these products it’s dermatologist test and won’t clog pores. We need both moisturizer and sunscreen daily to keep our skin looking youthful. Whenever I’d take my 90 year old+ mother to the dermatologist Aveeno is what they’d recommend for her.

For night we have AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless™ Restorative Night Cream. This is the only product that’s in a jar. This night cream is thick and creamy having the most delicious fragrance of all these. This is much more intense than the Daily Moisturizer so you need to scoop it out and cover your entire face and neck area with it. Do NOT forget your neck. You are doing everything you can to keep your face hydrated and more youthful but it’s your neck that is a tell tale giveaway of age (example Meg Ryan at the Tony’s!). This is great for dry skin especially.

Now for the very good news, AVEENO® has kindly offered to send 3 Beauty Info Zone this entire skincare line. The US only winners will win all 5 of the products to see for themselves what a difference AVEENO® can make in their skin.  — Marcia

CeraVe will surprise you with their hand cream and eye cream

CeraVe

CeraVe

What brand do you think you’ve used the longest for skincare? Long before I started blogging I kept CeraVe at the ready. It’s been a go-to brand for me for easily a dozen years. I’ve since discovered new products that they make and each keep adding to my admiration of this brand that we can all afford. CeraVe recently sent Beauty Info Zone several products, Lisa reviewed the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser along with the Healing Ointment while today I have three favorites to share.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

The product I’ve used the longest from CeraVe is their Hydrating Cleanser. I am lucky enough to receive a lot of high end skincare products but what we all need are basics. This cleanser is the one I turn to when my skin rebels and wants freedom. The Hydrating Cleanser is meant for Dry to Normal Skin. It’s a creamy cleanser that removes the day’s oils, dirt, cosmetics, and skincare in a gentle formula. The cleanser is creamy and remains that way on my skin when I’m using it. Fragrance free (yea!) and hydrating it never irritates my skin. If I’ve suffered through breakouts or gone to the dermatologist CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is what gets used for several days. I sometimes use this as a hand wash too since it’s very moisturizing but never sticky.

When I first started using this cleanser I really didn’t know anything about hyaluronic acid but as I’ve become more informed I was really excited to learn that this contains HA and ceramides. This and other CeraVe products offer a patented MVE delivery technology that provides a controlled release of ceramides and other protective ingredients slowly over time.

CeraVe Therapeutic Hand Cream

CeraVe Therapeutic Hand Cream

CeraVe Therapeutic Hand Cream is a great find. I didn’t know they made a hand cream until I received this but I’m so happy that this is mine. As a fragrance phobe I really prefer my hand creams to have none so CeraVe had me right there. But there’s more since this Therapeutic Hand Cream repairs my dry hands and helps protect them.

CeraVe Therapeutic Hand Cream

CeraVe Therapeutic Hand Cream

CeraVe develops all their skincare with dermatologists and this is one of their newest products. When your skin feels rough or dry or irritated you need to make the feel healthy again. Since it’s CeraVe it contains the essential ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid that they imbibe their products with. This non-greasy hand cream is very lightweight and takes such a short time to absorb. I’m back to typing within 10 seconds after applying it. Since I wash my hands constantly throughout the day I never feel like I’m layering on too much of a good thing. I also don’t feel like I’m wasting money as this is only $7.99. cerave hand cream swatchCeraVe Eye Repair Cream:

CeraVe Eye Repair Cream

CeraVe Eye Repair Cream

Anyone who’s been reading Beauty Info Zone for a while knows my obsession with eye cream. Even though I’d seen CeraVe Eye Repair Cream in drugstores, I was sort of snobby about it and never picked it up. Big mistake. This $11 eye repair cream does everything that the more expensive brands do but at a great price. The formula of this is great for day or night. Since it’s not greasy at all, it absorbs quickly so you can apply cosmetics shortly after. My eyeliner and mascara are not affected by my using this. The main goal of this eye cream is to reduce dark circles and puffiness while also protecting the delicate skin under your eye.

CeraVe Eye Repair Cream

CeraVe Eye Repair Cream

This little squiggle does the job for me. There’s no need to slather it on since this is enough for each eye. My eyes look brighter each day that I use this. Since there’s no fragrance I love to use it before bed too.

I hope CeraVe was the answer to my first question but even if it wasn’t, it could and should be now. You’ll thank me if you try any one of these, yes you will.  —  Marcia

Meltology Skin finale plus a triple giveaway

Meltology Skincare line

Meltology Skincare line

Last week my blog partner Lisa introduced you to the Meltology Skin line and talked about 4 products. Each of those 4 are being given away along with another item that I’m going to tell you about. Meltology is an interesting line that we were pleased to receive. Five of the products are numbered 1 – 5 so that you know the order to use them in if you are using the entire line. The other two items can be used whenever you prefer. I’ve got #3, #5, and the Self-Heating Spa Facial Mask to tell you about.

Meltology #3 Active Correcting Skin Complex, #5 Super Firming Eye Creme, Self-Heating spa Facial Mask

Meltology #3 Active Correcting Skin Complex, #5 Super Firming Eye Creme, Self-Heating spa Facial Mask

MELTOLOGY SKIN ACTIVE CORRECTING SKIN COMPLEX with Beta Glucan #3 ($60)

The Active Correcting Skin Complex is great with or without the Meltology system. It challenges your skin to correct your problems especially if you have blemished, stressed, and/or sensitive skin.

The main ingredient in Active Correcting Skin Complex is 1, 3 Beta Glucans (Nayad™), a patented polysaccharide from the cell walls of Baker’s yeast. Why this is important is that Nayad has been shown to support the skin’s natural ability to correct itself. The job of Nayad reminds me of being a teacher since it challenges your skin to correct problems like sallow or red skin tones. It helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by skin dehyration. This is a terrific lotion too if you have skin procedures like microdermabrasion, or you over exfoliate skin whether physically or chemically. I use it nightly before my moisturizer to keep the challenge my redness.

Active Correcting Skin Complex

Active Correcting Skin Complex

Key Ingredients:

1, 3 Beta Glucan: Skin Response modifier derived from yeast that challenges skin to correct itself.

Trehalose: Antioxidant cell protector; found in ‘resurrection’ desert plants that bloom after years of dormant dehydration.

Sodium Hyaluronate: Bioactive moisturizer; binds up to 1000 times its weight in water to skin.

Superoxide Dismutase: Powerful biological antioxidant in liposomal form; helps reduce appearance of red skin.

Silver Ear Mushroom: Remarkably hydrating extract that enhances moisture levels in the skin.

MELTOLOGY SKIN SUPER FIRMING EYE CREME

I’m all about eye creme and this Meltology Super Firming Eye Creme ($42) is proving to me that it does its job well. I didn’t bring it with me when I was traveling since I wanted only sample sizes and I noticed throughout my entire trip that under my eyes I’d lost the brightness that this eye creme had provided me in the last month. As soon as I got home and used it again, I was looking clear and smooth under my eyes.

Meltology Super Firming Eye Creme

Meltology Super Firming Eye Creme

The Super Firming Eye Creme is quite hydrating while being lightweight at the same time. I find that my eye area looks more soothed when I’m using this. This is an anti-aging creme which I feel is a necessity for me. It’s recommended to use this all around your eye to firm and lift. I’m not used to using an eye creme above my brows but I like doing it so this has taught me a new trick. An ultra-hydrating blend of Algae and Sea Water smoothes away fine lines to help keep skin moist and plump.

Key Ingredients:

Matrixyl™ 3000 (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide): Small chain amino acids that help firm, plump and smooth fine liners to visibly correct signs of aging.

Chlorella Vulgaris Extract: A microalgae that helps build firmness.

Pheohydrane (Hydrolyzed Algin, Chlorella Vulgaris and Sea Water): Improves long-term hydration, and revitalizes the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Sea Whip Extract: The strongest sea-derived soothing agent; calms delicate skin in seconds.

MELTOLOGY SKIN SELF-HEATING SPA FACIAL MASK ($31 for a 4 pack)

The Meltology Self-Heating Spa Facial Mask is totally different than any mask I’ve used and I’ve used a lot of masks! First you activate the mask by pouring very warm water into the pouch it comes in; the water is absorbed by the cloth mask within 15-20 seconds. What I didn’t realize the first time I used this though is that you should be applying your moisturizer on your skin first, particularly Revitalize Skin Concentrate. The first time I used the mask I didn’t do that and didn’t get the results I expected. The second and third times I used it, I did moisturize first. That was the key to the mask. The moist heat activates the ingredients in the moisturizer/revitalizer to give you a soothing mask experience. There is NO mess and nothing to drip down your face making this ideal for those of you who avoid masks because of the goo.

As you can see the mask, once ready to use, is soft making it even more soothing. You can use this mask once or twice a week. When you are done your face is moisturized so you don’t need to wash it again. This is a great mask for someone who doesn’t like masks! — Marcia

Prize one is Moisture Boost Cleanser and Revitalyze Skin Concentrate plus 1 Self Heating Spa Facial Mask. Prize two is Hydrating Skin Toner and Skin Balancing Renewal Lotion.

Skincare 101 – my Paula’s Choice regimen

Paula's Choice Resist line - my personal regimen

Paula’s Choice Resist line – my personal regimen

Makeup Wars is always a favorite for me. If you haven’t been hanging around Beauty Info Zone then you might not know that Makeup Wars is when a group of bloggers choose a topic and we all post about the same general idea. But the articles are so varied since we are all coming from different places in our life. Skincare 101 is a most exciting post because I know that I’m going to learn so much from the other “warriors” and what they are going to share.

I’m sharing my Paula’s Choice Resist products that I received from #PRIMP, Pretty in my Pocket, after a wonderful phone consultation. I’ve loved and used Paula’s Choice products for years. But the line has gotten so big that I was at a loss as to what I really should be using. I read the descriptions and everything sounds wonderful. The phone consult which takes between 10 and 15 minutes and is free to all, is perfect. Your representative discusses your skin type, age, skin concerns, and what you want to work on and then creates your own personal regimen. You can then pick out which items you want to start with or wait for another day. I recommend that you don’t wait though. I’ve been using my PC Resist products for 4 months now and don’t intend to stop. I’ll add in other lines that I want to review but I’ve always gone back to Paula’s Choice.

For this review you need to know that I’ve got skin that used to be combination but is now on the dry side, especially in cold weather. My concerns are keeping my face looking as youthful as possible while dealing with large pores, fine lines, and firmness.

CLEANSING:

Paula's Choice Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser and Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner

Paula’s Choice Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser and Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner

I use both the Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser and Advanced Replenishing Toner morning and evening. There are other cleansers in the Resist line but for my needs (and advancing age) I needed one that is gentle and hydrating. This is a lotion that cleanses my skin and removes any facial makeup without stripping my skin of essential oils. While it works for all skin types it’s especially recommended for normal to dry.

The Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner is a step that I often resist. There’s so much misinformation around about using a toner and it’s often skipped but it can be an essential step in balancing your skin and keeping it well preserved (and not pickled). This toner is one for anti-aging which can be seen in the ingredients. It helps build collagen for firmer skin, it contains anti-irritants to calm redness, and it has licorice extract & acetyl glucosamine to improve skin tone. The packaging is hard plastic so you can’t really squeeze it out, you pour it onto a cotton pad and there’s never too much that comes out. It removes all vestiges of makeup. It’s great after using a cleansing cloth if you are too tired to use a soap and water cleanser since it removes all the residue from the cloth.

DAYTIME:

Paula's Choice Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment and Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer

Paula’s Choice Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment and Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer

After cleansing and toning I use Paula’s Choice Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment and Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer. These are daytime only for me because of the ingredients in them.

The Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA contains glycolic acid which gently exfoliates and protects your skin’s barrier. This was chosen for me because it helps fade sun damage. I’m a firm believer in SPF but that’s not how I was brought up. I apply this AHA treatment as soon as I’ve finished with the two cleansing products. I like it to sink into my skin while I’m putting on my eye makeup. This is a light yellow creamy lotion that makes my skin feel very soft. I love anything that helps me correct my uneven skintone so this is a definite rebuy for me.

Resist Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer w/Broad Spectrum SPF 25 is the only moisturizer I took on a recent trip. I was packing light and this tube was exactly what I needed. I used it both day and night but at home I just use this during the day. Cellular Defense Daily Moisturizer fits all the things I’m looking for in a daytime product: fragrance-free, broad spectrum sunscreen (mineral based), works as an anti-aging product, contains antioxidants, and my foundation never balls up when using this PC sunscreen.

NIGHTTIME:

Paula's Choice Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer and Resist BHA 9

Paula’s Choice Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer and Resist BHA 9

Paula’s Choice Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer and her Resist BHA 9 are the two products I use only at night. After cleansing and toning I first apply Resist BHA 9 and let it work its magic on my skin. This thin tube is totally different than the other BHA I have from Paula’s Choice. I laughed when I got this because it’s subtitled as “for stubborn imperfections” which describes my life to a tee. This is actually a product that’s good for so many of us as it is a concentrated salicylic acid spot treatment to tackle the most stubborn imperfections for dramatic results without irritation. It’s to be used for acne breakouts, Anti-Aging, blackheads, enlarged pores, and keratosis pilaris. Being stubborn myself I use this all over my face and not as a spot treatment. My main goal with this is for my enlarged pores and anti-aging. I am seeing a difference on the pores on my cheeks, especially when I apply cream blush. During Christmas there were so many deals popping up that I bought a set containing this BHA so I wouldn’t run out. It has a slightly oily feel to it. I’ve never had any irritation with this. It’s a winner for me.

Paula's Choice Resist BHA 9

Paula’s Choice Resist BHA 9

Since the Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer has retinol in it, it’s strictly for night use around here. This was chosen for me because I had said I’m concerned with fine lines and future wrinkles. It’s very lightweight so I thought that it wouldn’t be enough moisturizing for me this winter but I was mistaken. I’m testing other skincare right now but I make sure to use this Barrier Repair Moisturizer a few times a week. The retinol in this works to improve skintone and I’ve been very happy with that overall. The percentage of retinol isn’t mentioned anywhere but it’s a mild one. This is best for normal to dry skin and happily is fragrance free.

EYE CREAM:

Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream

Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream

Oh what an uproar there was when Paula’s Choice announced they now had an eye cream. It was always her stand that we didn’t need a separate cream for eyes and many of her products are recommended to be used near your eyes. But women (especially me) want an eye cream and Paula listened. Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Eye Cream was brought out after much testing since she knew she’d be scrutinized by everyone for going against her grain. This is a nicely rich eye cream that hasn’t caused me to have any milia. I used it religiously for 2 months and now alternate it with any others that I’m testing. I love the packaging of it but I often get out more than I actually need. The amount on my finger is really enough for both eyes twice. I try to squeeze lightly so that not too much comes out. I rub it between my fingers to soften it and pat it on under my eyes. While it’s a very good eye cream at a good price, I’m not sure if this is a repurchase, but then again I have a drawer full of eye creams so we’ll see down the road.

There you have my Paula’s Choice regimen. When I’m ready to add new products or I have a question about one of their products I’d have no problem calling again or using their live chat online. I also have no problem telling you that this is a line to be trusted and one I believe in. If I had a daughter, I’d gladly steer her towards Paula’s Choice to find her own routine.

LovelySkin LUXE Brightening Eye Cream and big giveaway news

In celebration of LovelySkin’s big Thankgiving giveaways, aka THANKSGIVEAWAY, I was thrilled to receive LovelySkin LUXE Brightening Eye Cream which is the first prize being given away on November 2nd.

LovelySkin Luxe Brightening Eye Cream

LovelySkin Luxe Brightening Eye Cream

Each day from November 2nd through November 20th LovelySkin is hosting a new giveaway with 10 winners each day. Every time you enter you are also eligible for the grand prize worth almost $1500 on November 22nd.

Here’s why you want to be one of the 10 winners for LovelySkin LUXE Brightening Eye Cream:

1.  It contains Hyaluronic Acid which helps plump up skin and helps with anti-aging. I know for a fact that hyaluronic acid does help since I have had it injected in my knee when I was having severe pain. It helped fill in the areas of discomfort by acting as a cushion and a lubricant. If my orthopedic doctor helped this way, then I’m all for having hyaluronic acid help with my skincare.

2. LUXE Brightening Eye Cream works well on my dark circles. There’s almost a shimmer effect under my eyes when I apply this in the morning before my concealer or corrector. Anything that minimizes my dark circles wins in my book.

LovelySkin Luxe Brightening Eye Cream

3.  Not only does the eye cream help with anti-aging but it helps smooth crow’s feet. While this is a temporary effect that’s also fine in my book. Nothing topical can erase your crow’s feet but if they look reduced, you feel better.

4.  This is both gluten-free and paraben-free.

5.  The packaging is great. No contamination by touching any parts of the cream except when you want to use it. It’s not recommended for use on the eyelid though so keep that in mind. (I’ve used it there but only sporadically.)

LovelySkin Luxe Brightening Eye Cream

6.  This gentle but effective eye cream is good for all skin types even if you have sensitive eyes. I found it refreshing to apply. Unlike many eye creams there is NO fragrance which thrills me since I don’t see why you’d need fragrance near your eyes and I think that would be an irritant anyway (off my soapbox now).

LovelySkin LUXE Brightening Eye Cream ($72 from $90) is what you need if you have crow’s feet and need hydration in your delicate eye area. It is soothing, brightening and helps with wrinkles. What more could you want other than to maybe win this?  — Marcia

Christie Brinkley Recapture Day + IR Defense

We have been graciously offered a giveaway for one US reader of a Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare item and I chose the RECAPTURE DAY + IR DEFENSE moisturizer for this. I used this throughout the summer and it kept my skin well hydrated and radiant. This is a product I’d buy again and again and I’d love for one of you to have that same experience. My original review (HERE) gives you the information about this sunscreen moisturizer and as I reread it just now I was nodding my head in agreement with what I said 2 months ago. christie brinkley day cream jar information

The ingredients in this are excellent and leave my skin softer and ready for foundation.

• Neo-Dermyl is a cutting edge copper based ingredient that helps firm and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles as it rejuvenates the skin.

• Sytenol A is unique and powerful retinol-like anti-oxidant that visibly evens and brightens skin tone.

• K 3 Vita C is a stable form of vitamin C that helps support natural collagen production and even skin tone.

This is really a cutting edge product that I love. The Sunscreen is SPF30 and was my main sunscreen most of the summer. Even better news is that the Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare line is certified vegan and cruelty-free with 100% vegan formulations.  — Marcia
